Contemporary Wearables Biennial Jewellery Award and Exhibition is the focus of Toowoomba Regional Art Gallery's contribution to promoting excellence in contemporary adornment. The Award was established in 1989, with the aid of the Toowoomba Gallery Society Inc., and is a forum for experimental and innovative contemporary jewellery and object practice. Acquisitions from the award have made a significant contribution to building one Australia’s leading contemporary jewellery collections housed at Toowoomba Regional Art Gallery.
This year’s Award was juried by Christian Hall, Cassandra Lehman and Emily McCulloch.
The careful selection by leading industry professionals has resulted in an exhibition showcase of some of Australia’s most prominent and emerging contemporary makers. All pieces on display are eligible for awards and acquisition for the Toowoomba Regional Art Gallery - Toowoomba City Collection.
Contemporary Wearables Biennial Jewellery Award and Exhibition is proudly supported by Toowoomba Regional Council.
